How to Connect to a Slingbox With a PS3

Updated February 21, 2017

A Slingbox is a device that allows you to stream content from your computer to other devices, including Sony's PlayStation 3. This allows you to take a media file that exists on your computer and watch it on your television set without actually needing to burn that file to physical media like a CD or DVD. You can connect to your Slingbox with a PlayStation 3 using the game console's built-in web browser.

Turn on your Sony PlayStation 3 using the "PlayStation" logo button on your wireless controller.

Open your PS3's built-in web browser.

Select the "Address" option from the PS3 web browser main menu and go to ""

Use the PS3's virtual keyboard (or an attached Bluetooth keyboard, if applicable) to type your Slingbox e-mail address and account password into the boxes on screen.

Click "Login" to connect to your Slingbox using your Sony PlayStation 3 home-video game console.
